Major Allister Versfeld, Mission Development Officer


Major Allister is the Mission Development Officer for Strawberry Field. He served as a local church leader for 16 years before moving on to Divisional Headquarters to be a Divisional Mission Enabler. The main aspect of his role is to identify, explore and develop missional opportunities for Strawberry Field and the wider Merseyside area. He enjoys watching rugby (Springboks) and cricket (SA Proteas), as most South Africans would do. Before moving to the UK Allister was a professional musician.

“The plan to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
